Finishing and Assembly Notes: 
When gluing items, it is helpful to place a drop of glue on the tip of a toothpick; use the toothpick to precisely apply glue to desired spot. Use photos as a guide to positioning all pieces.  I have also found it helpful to make an assembly board by covering a sturdy sheet of cardboard with clear plastic wrap.   Glue will not adhere to the plastic wrap, and items can be assembled and left on it to dry. After items have been starched and dried, I move them from the blocking surface to the assembly board for gluing and final assembly.  

1: For each Rose, roll petals to form a rose shape. Glue base of Rose to hold petals in place. Allow to dry. 
2: Glue one set of Leaves to base of each Rose.  
3: Place Head, Bodice and Skirt on blocking surface (I use a large sheet of cardboard covered with white fabric.) Spray with starch. Shape Skirt and Bodice Ruffle. Allow to dry.  
4: Glue Hair to Head. Allow to dry. 
5: Glue Arms under Bodice Ruffle. Place Fan over Head and glue in place. Shape Arms and glue hands to hold in place. 
6: Place Background on blocking surface. Place assembled Belle on Background. Shape as shown in photo,  spray with starch and allow to dry.  
7: Glue Belle to Background. Allow to dry.  
8: Glue one Rose and one set of Leaves to each pineapple point as shown. Glue remaining Rose and set of Leaves to Belle’s hand. Allow to dry.
